L'Œil d'Oodaaq is an organization based in Rennes, France, that explores the images that surround us today, based on artists' productions. In 2024, L'Oeil d'Oodaaq is organizing its 13th Oodaaq Festival. It will take place in May in Rennes.
Through its programming, L'OEil d'Oodaaq questions the place of the image in today's society, and the way in which artists address contemporary problems and social issues. L'OEil d'Oodaaq is interested in all stages of the image's existence, from its construction to its reception and circulation, as well as its recent mutations in the digital age.
The Oodaaq Festival is intended as a space for encounters and cross-fertilization around these reflections on images and their media. Since the 2023 edition, the festival has been mainly devoted to video and performance art, with a particular interest in works that question contemporary struggles (ecofeminism, feminism(s), social and ecological struggles...). At the heart of the program, videos will be presented as part of program screenings containing several works, installations, and showcases.
